Is Adaptability More Important Than Art In Architecture? « QED Real Estate Consulting – – – – – – – – “The World is not flat, it’s 3D”

We have a huge oversupply of buildings in the United States. Which ones are going to survive? I think that the ones that are of value are not always the ones that were most artistic at the time they were built. I think adaptability has priority over artistic impact in the long run. We can fix ugly, as Bofill has demonstrated with this cement factory. But we can’t fix useless.
